The English Cream Golden Retriever: Fact or Fiction?

english Cream Golden Retrievers

While English Cream Golden Retrievers are beautiful animals don’t be fooled by their flashy title.  Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with these amazing dogs.  In fact, they are one of the most sought after of all Golden Retriever color coats.  But don’t let some fast talking breeder fool you into thinking these animals are rare because the title “English Cream Golden Retriever” is just a title. To jack up the price of these light colored dogs some not so professional breeders have started a buzz on the internet claiming they are from some magical blood line.  These breeders, who are hungry for your dollar, will even try to make you think that the English Cream Golden Retriever is a separate breed all together.  But this simply isn’t the case.  In reality, they are nothing more than a light colored common Golden Retriever.

Don’t Be Fooled By Breeders Who Only Want Your Money

This practice of mystifying a common dog breed simply because it has a unique color has become rampant on the internet.  In fact, many people who are uneducated about dogs often wind up paying hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars for these animals.  While no purebred dog comes cheap, these outrageous prices are simply absurd.

Many times these breeders will have sick and uncared for animals that are kept in puppy mills.  Not only will you potentially lose your money, you may also be heartbroken if the puppy you buy doesn’t live very long due to poor breeding practices.  To avoid this unpleasant experience, find a breeder that has a proven track record with many happy customers to prove it.

If You Want One of These Beautiful Animals, Go To an Honest Breeder

If you are looking for a light colored Golden Retriever try to stay away from those breeders advertising their dogs as “English Cream Golden Retriever”.  Instead find a reputable breeder that specializes in Golden Retrievers.  They can help you find a puppy that is light or creamed colored without having to pay an arm and a leg for them.  Even if they don’t have a puppy in there litter that turns out light color they can probably help you find a breeder that does.

So don’t be fooled by those fly by night breeders that only want to take advantage of your lack of knowledge.  Make sure to work with a breeder that has a solid reputation for providing affordable and healthy animals.
